I got the pathology report back on that suspicious mole that was taken off my thigh. Good news!
It was not cancerous. It was Pre-cancerous, meaning if I had left it there to perk, there was a 25% chance it would have "converted" to deadly skin cancer. So it was a good call to take it off, just in case. Yay!
Take away lesson for us all: don't let this Obesity Monster rob us of even more, by making us procrastinate going to the doctor due to embarrassement about our bodies.
I almost waited too long, because I didn't want to have a man-not-my-husband looking and touching my big squishy fat thigh. It brought up feelings of embarrassment, shame, and humiliation.
I kept waiting, thinking "as soon as I lose some more and am smaller" I'll have it looked at.
By then it might have been too late.
So don't procrastinate like I did... we are worth taking care of ourselves NOW!
From Dr Phil's book: "Start behaving in ways that make you feel really good about yourself."
My verse for today: "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you."
My quote for today: "You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down." --Mary Pickford
